Willem Nel

Tighthead prop Willem Nel signed with Edinburgh Rugby on a three-year contract in the summer of 2012, and soon established himself as a fan favourite.

The front-row qualified to play for Scotland through residency in  2015, and made his debut for the national team against Italy in Turin, before playing a pivotal role throughout the subsequent Rugby World Cup campaign.

Nel surpassed the 100 cap mark with Edinburgh against Leinster in September 2016, and committed to the club on a three-year deal ahead of the 2017/18 season.
